    That sound you heard whizzing over your head was my point.

    When you remember this is a retailer known for random cancellations, including preorders for this particular item, you might get it.

    Oh I get the point, I just also know that people here have had a penchant for overreacting to things lately on here. As this seemed to be.

    I'm having the hardest time finding in Origins Bumblebee in stock almost anywhere in Texas (according to the Target listing), is there a trick to tracking one down, or will I be stuck paying twice as much on eBay?

    Ebay:
    It's a case by itself. keep checking, you'll find it.

    Has anyone else's target suddenly become flush with Studio Series Grimlock? I've been on the hunt for Slag (unsuccessfully) and all the Targets I've checked have just a metric crapton of Grimmys all of a sudden. Did I miss something?

    I only wanted Nemesis Primal. So I decided to pick him up on ebay separately.

    But I did use the app and selected notify me when available. It came back in stock a few times and I could have added it for in store pick up.

    Just had to approve another delay on the SS 24/25 Bumblebee 2-pack. Went from Sept 1 to Sept 15, now Sep 22. I know how this game goes. 2 more delays before they cancel it .

    ^This

    Target's inventory system is pretty lackluster (unless something has changed), Texas is a huge AF landmass and, Target is notorious for varying wildly from location to location in every way imaginable.

    Buzzworthy Origins Bumblebee is currently one of those items that you have to ignore the "unavailable" status on for the main product page listing. Regardless if you use the app or the website, use the change store function and then see if it's available at a local location for in-store pickup. It will occasionally be available for Same Day Delivery (via Shipt) in the Target app (not sure about the website) but, it has never been available for Delivery (ship to home). Before anyone starts flipping tables over items only being available for local pickup, it's an attempt to thwart scalping just like it is with XBSX and other merchandise (it's significantly harder and more expensive to have to go to every possible location compared to depleting the entire inventory online).

    What part of Texas are you in Criggity ? It's fine if you don't want to disclose that publicly, send me a PM/DM and I can try to help you find one ($21.84+ tax) locally (or $21.84+tax+S&H if there are none). Full disclosure, I don't work at Target and I don't have access to a Zebra/Telxon device (nor anything else internal).

    Of course after finding 2 Thrust but no Wreck-Gar at my local store yesterday, I had to approve yet another delay for him this morning! At this point my Amazon back-up will ship or he’ll start showing up at Walmart!

    People have been finding that wave at Walmart for longer than Target has been receiving inventory of the wave. It just seems like restocks have stalled.

    No walmart or target has stocked that wave to fill the empty shelves in my area for well over a month now. Its baffling.

    I'm guessing it's just like my store. I work for Walgreens and we were told that basically they have staff shortages to unload the giant ships at the ports. So goods are just sitting there which then also causes a delay in them returning to pick up more cargo, etc.

    I’ve yet to see them at my area Walmarts. Miss having that case SKU for using Brickseek to check SS Voyager stock.

    I have been keeping an eye on the Target listing for SS86 Gnaw. It popped into stock briefly this morning just long enough for me to get a pre-order in. It lingered in stock for about a minute afterward, and then went back to "preorder sold out" status again. It only let me order qty 1 which is something I've noticed on several things I ordered with respect to action figure type items.

    No. My Target hasn't had Leaders of any kind for months.

    If it's Road Rage, I think I'll put in an order! I was messing with Tracks again today and I still like him a lot!

    I'm sure we'll see the Road Rage listing go live tomorrow, but hopefully we'll see more than just that.
